Abstract: The "Baxter" robot is a robot that has many different applications. It has sensors that allow it to detect when it’s made contact with a person, so it can stop and also they give the robot the ability to adapt to its environment. Based on the data from the sensors, the robot can sense potential collision events early and can reduce the force before the impact. This is due to a motor driving a spring which drives Baxter's arms instead of just a driving its arms motor. Another feature that distinguishes Baxter from other robots is that instead of writing complicated code, users can grab the robot’s arms and physically guide them through the required motions – this way the robot can even fold clothes. Its face is a flat screen that can express “feelings”. This also makes it able to participate in studies about human-robot interaction (HRI).
